Harder than it seems...
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Here it is, half way through February and I feel as though I've fallen off the wagon again. Jan 29th I weighed in and had lost 3 pounds. Feb 5th I weighed in and stayed the same, didn't gain but didn't lose either. But that weekend I also made cupcakes for 2 different events, and all last week I've been having about a cupcake a day (stupid leftovers I didn't get out of the house). I also majorly slacked on my workouts, and didn't even dare to weigh in on the 12th (I try to weigh in each Sunday afternoon for consistancy).
Yesterday I didn't work out either, but did make the choice to have a subway sandwich instead of eating at a pizza buffet. VERY good choice there. I will be taking a walk with my husband and my dog tonight, and plan to work out as well.
I suppose it's all a matter of balance. I need to put in the effort to lose the weight, and need to work it in to where it's a lifestyle change, not just something temporary to try to drop a few pounds. I'm also trying hard to eat healthy, which isn't bad most of the time, but there are times I find myself holding an empty cupcake wrapper and wondering how it got in my hand... scary.
At least I have no temptation from V-day candy (we don't bother to celebrate it), and the cupcakes are gone... maybe this week can be a healthier one than last week at least.
